Teachers under the banner of Federation of Government College Teachers’ Associations (FEGOCTA) in Manipur are continuing their stir for the third consecutive day, while demanding implementation of the seventh UGC pay commission.

The government college teachers’ indefinite class boycott stir commenced on February 17.

Apart from their sit-in protest, the agitating teachers also staged sit-in-protest at the DM College of Arts today.

The teachers are on strike since January 28 demanding implementation of 7th UGC Pay and Regulations, 2018 in the state. They had recently reaffirmed to continue the strike until the government issues orders adopting the UGC policy.

The state cabinet had earlier agreed to implement the new UGC pay scale, but so far it has failed to do so.
